This article presents a reflection of my personal health journey since starting university as a student nurse. Focusing on social, physical and psychological aspects of health, it explores the impact of stress and the cessation of exercise on my health and wellbeing. The similarities and differences of lay and theoretical definitions of health are examined, and a personal definition of health is presented. The discussion presents my understanding of health as a student nurse, and analyses how loneliness has impacted on my health and wellbeing during the first two terms of university.
